Description Edit | History

From the publisher's website:

TENJO captivates players from a wide range of age groups with diverse gaming interests. Strategies combine elements of combat, resources, wealth, negotiations, and timing. The warfare is ruthless, diplomacy is crucial, and emotional engagement is intense.

A highly flexible set of rules allows 2 to 4 players to adopt a limitless number of scenarios and methods with ease. Expected game time varies from 3 to 10+ hours. No two games are the same. This is truly a war game of infinite possibilities!

0 Tenjo Royal Court Mat
This is for the glory variant posted. I used modge podge to "lacquer" this page to a small black foam board. I then cut 3mm square Balsa wood strips (hobby lobby--cheap) to create borders for each square. I use small oval (flat bottomed) glass beads and this keeps everything in place.

When mounting, I left extra space at the bottom to hold both extra beads (as they will be added and removed frequently) as well as family cards. The victory condition boxes were left open to the bottom area (no borders since the beads are slid back and forth a lot). The wooden borders and modge podge add a great thematic aesthetic --not as much as painting a new board for this frustatingly "coulda,...

This will shield your chip rack from other players and provide a separate shield to allow you to allocate glory if playing with the glory variant.
